Hi, Abo Hamza,

I'd go for the second one, or else say something like:

- Muhammad is going to learn English, and so is Hamza.

The first kind of ellipsis can be used, I think, when some other tense is used before, as in this example I found here:

Has Claire bought a new car yet? She said she was going to.

I like Gustavo's use of "and so is Hamza" and, like him, prefer the second example to the first. I'd just like to note that the first sentence, though awkward, is not incorrect. The awkwardness owes to the "to, too" combination, and that can be overcome by changing "too" to "as well":

(1a) Muhammad is going to learn English, and Hamza is going to, as well.
